Care to illustrate these nice pictures with words?

I don't have any additional words to contribute at this point beyond what is annotated. Looks like it starts off as a rather quiet journey.

I think to engage more interest you should provide a few more details. For example, is this a design for a new espresso machine, or for an aftermarket enhancement of an existing one?

Ohh it's gonna get tres interesting - don't worry.

New machine -vs- aftermarket enhancement? I suppose that's a matter of opinion. You can decide. The core guts are from a Lelit PL41 machine.

Currently waiting for parts to arrive so I can assemble the concept sketch.

Coupled with a rhumba and it could be delivered to you. :D
Looking forward to seeing your design.
Old baristas never die. They just become over extracted.
